Message From the Dean

Diego Nocetti

The faculty and staff of the Reh School of Business keep transforming lives. Over the past year, their dedication to our students, their commitment to improving business practices and public policy through their scholarship, and their everyday actions have had a tremendous impact. I am proud of my colleagues and honored to lead such an exceptional group of people as dean of the School. 

Particular praise goes to four members of the Reh School team who recently received prestigious awards for their outstanding work:

  • Farzad Mahmoodi received Clarkson’s Lifetime Achievement in Research and Scholarship Award.
  • Patricia Perrier ’04, MBA’05 received the CUSA Outstanding Teaching Award.
  • Sandra Zuhlsdorf MBA’93 received Clarkson’s Outstanding Advisor Award.
  • Adrienne Boswell ’99, MS’03 received the Commendable Leadership Award from Phalanx.

Below you can also read about one of our famous entrepreneurship competitions, about the exciting work on social media polarization that one of our faculty is conducting, and about new program offerings in supply chain management, entrepreneurial leadership and healthcare management. Cheers to the accomplishments of our students, faculty and staff!

He was also recently named the Elmer Gates ’50 Professor of Innovative Business Culture. Congratulations on both of these prestigious achievements!
